Camp and Korea

Well.....everyone decided to leave at the same time. This is a photo from our dinner last night before Grandma left for Korea for 3 months and Haven left for camp for a week. We had a great dinner and lots of fun hanging out. Both of them left at 8am this morning!

Here is our beautiful Haven as she received her Cabin number and information for camp today. I was up until 11pm last night packing her huge bag of everything she needed for camp. She was so excited this morning she could barely contain herself. I was already tearing up just signing her in at the desk.

It was about 20 minutes after registration that she realized we did not pack Crazy Feet because he slept with her last night. I could see the panic in her eyes and dad jumped up and took off to Target. He made it back before she got on the bus with a new baby, named Angel, and some PJs for the baby for the PJ breakfast.

This is a picture of Haven with Angel. She got on the bus and sat by the window so I could see her. She sat with a cute girl that happened to be the girl in the pink shirt to the left in this photo. I could see them talking away while I stood outside. I made dad tap her window so she could see that we were waiting and waiving. I believe we waved and blew kisses 5,000 times. Of course, as the bus pulled away I was crying. I cannot believe my baby is on a bus to camp for a week! An ENTIRE week! It has been a very hard day for me. I check my phone every 10 minutes in case she needs me to come get her.

I know she is having a blast --- she learned from another little girl what "SMORES" are....and what a snow cone is. So I'm sure this will be the best week ever for her! :)

Oh....but I MISS MY BABY!!!! It's 8:10 pm and it's been exactly 10 hours since she left. I think I'll go to bed now to make it go faster!!!


  1. Try not to think about it too much! Just remember, she's getting to do something that so many kids do every summer, and that others will never get to do! I wish I could send K to a camp, but can't see that happening! I'm sure she's having a great time and will come home with a ton of stories!!

  2. Dear Misty,

    What blessed news that Miss Haven has lost weight and grown in height. I pray that her immune tests will bring good results, too.

    I hope she has a great time at camp. I know it has to be so hard on you to let her go to camp by herself, but hang in there.

    Still remembering Haven and family in prayer.

    With caring prayers,
